She has also introduced a new show for 2019; AMY ~ a heartfelt tribute to Amy Winehouse.  A life gone too soon and regarded so highly by many in the music industry including her idol, Tony Bennett.  She was one of the greatest voices to share her talent.  Shows are coming so join the fun! 


Fierro released her first solo album in August of 2014 called Legacy.  It is a timeless collection of old and new soul / rock with originals and covers worthy of covering.  This was a special project to Cate and most of all, her daughters are also featured on a track.  Truly an amazing Legacy in the making.


Along with the incredible talent and sass of Katie Gearty and the timeless class and grace of Leslie Ball, the three pay tribute to Eva Cassidy, Laura Nyro and Rikki Lee Jones in a show called SOUL WOMEN.  It is an intense show revealing and reminding us of the talent of those three artists performed by a band that honors their sound and feel.  You will be moved.

Cate does  marketing for all of the groups she currently is performing in as well as being a strong supporter of The 30-Days Foundation that since it’s inception, has helped over 90,000 Minnesota individuals and families, a cause dear to her heart. In 2012, The 30-Days Foundation held their Bowling Ball Gala in which she recorded one of her newest original songs, “Now’s The Time”. 


Whether it is singing to her daughters, filled auditoriums or an intimate club setting, Cate provides a soulful vibe with a charming and inviting stage presence.  She loves all that these shows bring to those who attend. 

2019’s mantra ~ do things that feel good to your soul and share that with those around you.
